You spoil that for me, and we're going to have problems.

I love it when jackasses in the walking dead thread who read the comics give away plot details for the show.

Don't worry. I'm the biggest anti-spoiler guy ever. I got pissed last week because someone spoiled the last episode for me as I watched it a few days late.

Woah, those are connected? I read a lot of those comics last year. I was one comic behind my friend for a couple weeks, but ended up stopping..

Maybe I'll watch all the episodes.

It doesn't perfectly follow the comic, but there's enough similarities where knowing the comics could spoil major plot points, characters, or settings. Example, the setting of the next season was spoiled within 15 minutes of the finale starting in the Walking Dead thread.

Anyone here want to write my paper on Machiavelli and/or Hobbes, Rousseau, Locke, or La Boetie?

The guys in that TWD thread are pretty hardcore.

Why not write it yourself? Those are all fascinating topics, Rousseau especially. What do you have to write on, specifically: the philosophies of each, or their historical context?

Rousseau had a huge influence on the French revolution, which is one of my favorite historical events. Also, The Social Contract is one of the most important important philosophical and political documents ever written. I own a copy printed in 1850 that I bought from a library that was condensing it's collection for like $5... why it was selling that book in particular is beyond me. I think they wanted to keep a newer (read: in better condition) version... oh well, their loss.

JayJay (as his friends call him) Rousseau is awesome, you should write on him.

I forgot to bring Rousseau home with me so he is a non-starter. I don't like writing papers on any of these guys because they've been analyzed to death. I cannot learn anything from them because everything there is to learn about them has been dictated to me in lecture. At least that's how I feel. I realize the point is to develop and refine my analytic skills, but I just feel there isn't enough practical application for this analysis to make it interesting for me.

The topic I've selected is to answer the following:
"Is equality necessary for good citizenship? Compare the answers of TWO of the following authors: Machiavelli, La Boetie, Hobbes, Locke, Rousseau.

QFT. I've never understood the point of philosophy. It's a bunch of grown men, acting like three-year olds and asking "why? why? why? why?" Who cares? It doesn't make a difference in my day-to-day.

Philosophy is all about trying to discuss the questions that the scientific process cannot or will not answer. The problem is almost every discourse is rooted in oversimplified, inaccurate assumptions about human nature, and beyond providing an outlook on what an idealistic society might be, they rarely explain how to realistically achieve such a society.

Reading La Boetie is particularly funny. In one paragraph he describes how mankind could consent to a monarchical rule; when society is endangered, an individual steps up to provide security. He can do this because he is more courageous and virtuous or skilled than the others of society. However, by repeatedly doing this task of protecting society, the people become habituated to him and begin to obey his orders. Thus, he becomes a monarchical ruler.

Next paragraph: oh but that's bad because the ruler will be a tyrant, because he'll have the power to commit evil. We are unwilling to stop him even though he only has power because we give it to him; thus the monarch lacks courage and is effeminate.

How the hell did the ruler go from courageous and good to effeminate and cowardly?

Mine used to do that. My doctor told me to take some sort of spray, and now I don't get nosebleeds.
